Key dates for the Health Insurance Marketplace

Open Enrollment is the time when you can apply for a 2015 Marketplace plan, keep your current plan, or pick a new one.

Here are 4 key dates you should know:

November 15, 2014. Open Enrollment begins. Apply for, keep, or change your coverage.

December 15, 2014. Enroll by the 15th if you want new coverage that begins on January 1, 2015. If your plan is changing or you want to change plans, enroll by the 15th to avoid a lapse in coverage.

December 31, 2014. Coverage ends for 2014 plans. Coverage for 2015 plans can start as soon as January 1st.

February 15, 2015. This is the last day you can apply for 2015 coverage before the end of Open Enrollment.

Of course if you change your job, move or lose your employer’s health coverage you may qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
